Deep red-black in color, with a dense chocolatey brown head. Hogsback is mildly carbonated and aged longer than other ales. This English style stout is richer, smoother and slightly sweeter than typical Irish style stouts, making it popular among a wider range of beer aficionados. Extremely complex in its flavor and aroma it will at once give you impressions of coffee, chocolate, molasses, hops, sweet malt, and silky-smooth alcohol. A big beer to brew, but worth the extra effort! This is Mt. Hood's second-most popular beer. O.G. 1.064/ 4.5 abv/ Magnum, Mt. Hood, Cascade, Willamette hops/ Four different malts and rolled oats/ Molasses and licorice.

On tap at Mt. Hood Brewery. Pours black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and oatmeal. Taste is toasty, with oatmeal, roasted malt and creamy chocolate notes into the finish. Very drinkable stout

Une petite stout avec une corpulence plus qu’adéquate, crémeuse, moelleuse et presque décadente. Le chocolat au lait prend la place qu’il devrait et se laisse trancher par les grains rôtis pour un équilibre digne de ce nom.

Draught at the brewpub; 4.7% ABV
Black color, brown head. Very smooth, a bit creamy, with a mix of roasted malt and dark chocolate, but the nitro is a killer and it doesn’t express itself fully.

Teddlet (12) - Magalia, USA - MAR 27, 2014
(on cask) slight sulphur bitter in the nose, behind the roast & coffee notes. Mild bitter roast that dances above all before being pulled down & drowned by the frey between coffee and chocolate.

Jet black with a tan head, looks delicious. And the aroma roasted grain, chocolate, coffee, and licorice. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel, perfect amount of bittering hops, this could possibly be one on the best oatmeal stouts Ive had to date.
